Skrewdriver – Boots And Braces lyrics

Trying to figure out just what to do
Wonder what the future holds for you
Being in a cult is part of growing up today
Drifting 'round the streets you're living your life your own way, in your...

Boots and braces, shaven-headed hoards
Boots and braces, fighting cause you're bored
Boots and braces, you'll always get the blame
Boots and braces, we'll come in just the same

Wearing your Ben Sherman in the sun
Trying to figure out just who to run
Levi jeans, Doc Marten boots, and just hear the skinhead roar - Skinhead!
No one stands against us, 'cause we've beat 'em all before

(Repeat Chorus)


(Repeat Chorus)

Try and get you banned from everywhere
Cause you wear your boots and you cut your hair
They would rather see you in a dirty old Afghan
If you were a Left-wing hippie, you won't face no ban

(Repeat Chorus)

    Being a skinhead. Killing time with your friends talking about what you'd do if you were in power. What you would do if you had money, power, influence, etc. Enjoying your friends company. Respecting your differences, celebrating your similarities. United by love. Proud of what you have accomplished. Not hateful. Not violent. Even carrying the die-hard pride for your race & ethnicity & country. But leave the hatred at the door. That goes first & foremost to the jewish zionists. If you are a jew & you want my friendship & respect you will need to earn it. Too many times your people have swindled others. I don't hate you but I am apprehensive being around you. Prove me wrong is what I am looking for. But hatred, violence, mean-spiritedness, no. Love & respect.
